Russian Cops March Bears Into Forest

Bears in the streets and tough cops… this week, two stereotypes about Russia came together in the coal-mining region of Kemerovo Oblast when local police marched a trio of hungry bear cubs from a central town square back into the nearby woods. According to a statement from regional police, late Thursday, a local woman in the town of Beryozovsky spotted one cub “calmly strolling down the street, looking for food in the garbage bins”. Five teams of officers soon arrived at the spot, only to find three bear cubs in the courtyards of nearby buildings. Police cordoned off the area; then, they “escorted the uninvited guests into the woods. They followed the bear cubs in their patrol cars and lit the way with their headlights. The trip took more than an hour”. The police speculated that the cubs might have been the orphans of a female bear fatally hit by a freight train in July on a nearby rail line.
